It must be time for the Ekka!! It’s so windy at the moment and it always seems to coincide with the Exhibition being held in Brisbane. I hope everyone in the bottom half of Australia is doing okay with the crazy, cold weather at the moment. Keep safe everyone!!
We are casing the layouts on page 101 of the 2019 Annual Catalogue.
I decided to case the elephant card on the bottom left.
I love the background of this card. When you look closely, it is one of the smaller Stitched Nested Labels. I went through my stash of dies, looking for a good shape to layer and I found a banner from the Merry Christmas dies which I thought would work. I went through my DSP for a nice background and went with my fav, Woven Threads DSP. My background is Tranquil Tide. I did layer up the banners in case there was an accident!! (It happens sometimes!!) I mounted the banners with dimensionals to raise them up a little bit.
I’ve just received the Cuckoo for You bundle which is soooo cute!! I coloured the clock using a combination of markers and blends in Tranquil Tide, Pretty Peacock, Terracotta Tile and Pool Party. I put an In Colour Faceted Dot on the centre of the clock. For the sentiment, I’ve got a little sneak peak from the Holiday Catalogue. It’s Shimmery Silver ink!! Can’t wait to play with this more!!
I can’t wait to see what Lauren has created.
We would love to see what you have created, so please your creation with us at our Facebook group.
We are casing the Everyday Occasions section, pages 12-71 of the 2019 Annual Catalogue.
There are so many great projects in this section, it’s hard to choose just one!
I did manage to choose one though. I went with the layout on page 28 with the circle.
On the same page is the On to Adventure stamp set. I mainly got this set as my dad is a golfer and there is a handsome golfer included in this set.
I used a piece of Call me Clover DSP from the 2018-2020 In Color DSP stack. I went with the diagonal pattern as it looks a little like a golf shirt. I cut out a circle and then created the circle frame using the Stitched Shape dies.
I then stamped my golfer in memento black and coloured with blends. I used Petal Pink, Mango Melody and Smoky Slate. I coloured the grass with an aqua painter in Call Me Clover ink.
I used the Well Said stamp set and matching Well Written dies for the sentiment. I’m all set for Father’s Day early this year!
Next up is the lovely Julia.
I hope you can share your creation with us over on at our Facebook group.
Welcome to another fun week of Caseing the Catty. We are casing the layout on page 159.
Did you know about Stampin’ Up!’s angel policy? If you sell your cards, you need to make sure they include one of the Stampin’ Up! copyright stamps. The Crafting Forever stamp set on page 159 does include this stamp.
It’s fun to see how each of the Crew members have interpreted this layout different! I have just received the Fable Friends stamp set and I had to use it straight away.
I turned the layout onto it’s side and selected a DSP for the background. I went with the Garden Lane DSP. I then cut out a Stitched Rectangle and stamped the little row of ducks in Memento Black. I stamped Mama duck on a separate piece of thick whisper white cardstock and fussy cut her out. I then coloured them all with blends. I used So Saffron, Seaside Spray, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake. I stamped the grass and sentiment in Pear Pizzazz.
This is such a cute stamp set and I love it!!
Next up is my lovely friend, Rose.
We would love see your case of this layout so make sure you sure your creation at our Facebook group.
Welcome to a fun week at Caseing the Catty!! We are trying a few different challenges and this week, we are casing the colour scheme from the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.
This DSP is just so pretty and I love all the colours together.
Whenever I do a colour challenge, I always get out the cardstock in all the colours and see what inspires me. I didn’t want to use the Pressed Petals DSP (well, actually I did but I wanted to try something different).
I just got the Band Together stamp set and the co-ordinating
Detailed bands dies. This stamp set features a really large flower which is
great for colouring. I fussy cut my flower and coloured with Old Olive and
Rococo Rose blends.
I layered up with Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and embossed a piece of Pear Pizzazz with the 3d Layered Leaves embossing folder. I cut the band in Daffodil Delight. The centre piece does come out but I needed something to stamp the sentiment on.
Next up is my lovely friend across the ocean, Sandra.
We would love to see what you create with this colour combo! Share it over on at our Facebook Group.
Welcome to the first challenge of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue!! Have you placed your order yet? Mine should be arriving tomorrow!!
For our first challenge, we are casing the Artistic Expressions section, pages 106-159.
I was inspired by the card on page 131 which features some no line colouring.
So I used the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and attempted to create flowers using the flower image in the set. As you may notice from my card below, I was not happy with how they turned out! I think I need to practise this technique a bit more before I publicly share it.
I am rather taken with the Garden Lane DSP and I think it makes for perfect backgrounds. I added a sentiment from the Beautiful Promenade set and cut it out in Flirty Flamingo with the Stitched Labels dies. I added a piece of the new Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon as well. It’s so pretty!!
Tell me which is your favourite new DSP? It’s a bit hard to choose just one!
Next up is my lovely friend, Liz.
We would love to see what has inspired you in the Artistic Expressions section so add your creation to our Facebook group.
Welcome to another exciting week at Caseing the Catty. We are casing the How Sweet it is section, pages 14-23 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.
I really love the big colouring stamp sets that SU have been bringing out in the last couple of catalogues, like the Birthday Sentiments set on page 19. I have case the colours from the card on page 19 and the layout from the small card on page 18.
I stamped the main image in Merry Merlot and then coloured the flowers using blender pens in Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.
Instead of ribbon, I used a piece of Floral Romance Specialty DSP behind the image. I stamped the Happy from the Birthday Statements stamp set in Petal Pink and punched out with the Classic Label punch.
